We should boycott stories and only discuss the abomination that is Slashdot Beta until Dice abandons the project.
We should boycott slashdot entirely during the week of Feb 10 to Feb 17 as part of the wider slashcott
Moderators - only spend mod points on comments that discuss Beta
Commentors - only discuss Beta
http://slashdot.org/recent - Vote up the Fuck Beta stories
Keep this up for a few days and we may finally get the PHBs attention.

you know the basic rules of the road, anything about traffic laws
Not going to say anything about the other two, but I think that most people who have a license do at least know the rules/laws related to driving. Willingness to follow them at the expense of getting somewhere a couple minutes later or being unable to stay connected to their friends for the duration of the trip is another thing entirely.
Just go with the flow control, roll with the crunches, and, when you get a prompt, type like hell.
